I am passionate about creating natural photographs for your family to enjoy and look back on in years to come. It is always a privilege to share special moments in peoples' lives such as pregnancy, a new baby, a special birthday or an anniversary.
I also love doing boudoir shoots (a great confidence booster!), commercial and wedding photography.
Please take a look through some of my recent work and see my pricing below. If you have any questions just drop me a message.
What happens in a photoshoot?
Photoshoots can take place at a location of your choice or in your home, where I will set up a mini studio. I can suggest some stunning and unique locations e.g. a forest or beach.
Your photoshoot will last for around one hour (newborns are usually longer, see below).
You are welcome to bring up to three outfit changes in order to create different looks.
Relatives and pets are welcome to join in too.
I'll direct you throughout the shoot, letting you know where to look, how to pose etc. I'll take a wide variety of shots of you in different positions and with interesting backgrounds so that you'll have lots to choose from.
Following the shoot, I'll make an online gallery for you to view and will show you around 40-60 images. You can then choose what you would like to buy.
A one hour photoshoot with me costs £45.
I ask that payment is taken prior to your photoshoot and counts as a non-refundable deposit.
This fee covers the time for your photoshoot, plus editing time and a viewing gallery of 40+ photos. The fee does not include any photographs.
I believe in keeping prices for photographs honest, simple and affordable.
I can help you create the perfect gift. Please message me if you wish to purchase a gift voucher for a present for someone special.
This could just be the shoot fee, a package included or money towards a package.
I will tailor make a voucher that I can email you to print.
Some things you might like to know about me:
I have over 25 years of experience in the creative industry
I am DBS checked
I am very considerate and patient; during any photoshoot I am happy to take a break if required.
If someone in your family has a disability or Autism, I will make as many adaptations as you need.
If you are nervous or 'hate being in front of the camera', just let me know. I keep things very casual and aim to make you feel at ease.
I direct you throughout your photoshoot, so you don't need to think of how to pose. However, if you have a specific idea in mind then please let me know, I love working together with my clients and getting creative!
Some specifics about certain photoshoots:
These photoshoots last around 90 minutes. I allow extra time for feeds, nappy changes and cuddles! You can bring three outfits, but you can also get stunning, natural shots with them unclothed. We can use your baby's special teddies and blankets if you wish. This type of photoshoot isn't just about baby; I love taking shots of the whole family (pets included) with your beautiful baby. The ideal time for a newborn shoot is in the first two weeks from birth. I will of course get beautiful shots at other times too such as 6 months old or their first birthday, where you can personalise your photoshoot with a cake smash, bunting etc.
The ideal time for your bump photoshoot is between the 32nd and 36th week of pregnancy. I am more than happy for you to show off your beautiful bump unclothed so that you get very natural photographs. You can bring along scan photos, baby booties, a special teddy bear if you wish. This shoot isn't just for Mum-to-be; I love including your whole family during this special time. Most of my maternity customers come back when little one is born so I can capture your baby in the first precious weeks of parenthood. I have a dedicated price list for those who come for bump2baby photoshoots.
I will take a wide variety of photographs of you all together, in pairs (e.g. partners, siblings) and individually throughout your photoshoot. Please feel free to bring your pets, as they are part of the family too! If you all share a special interest, it looks great when you bring props; for example, if you all play tennis together, it would be fun to bring your rackets to style your shoot. I am happy to photograph large family gatherings or attend a special occasion. Please message me for a quote.
